Slaterju Santa Catarina Pro

Slaterju Santa Catarina Pro
July 4, 2009 Klemen Surk

Potem, ko je v prvih treh tekmah letošnje sezone Slater dosegel..hm…tak rezultat, da se ga niti na splača zapomniti, je v tekmi z najbolj bednim webcastom do sedaj – Hang Loose Santa Caterina Pro spet začel postavljati stvari na svoje mesto. V finalu je premagal domačega favorita Adriana De Souzo in zlezel na deveto mesto v skupni uvrstitvi. Tako ima morebitni Sl10er za nadoknaditi še 8 mest :).

Posnetek finala: 

 

Kaj je po zmagi povedal:

“I definitely feel like I sharpen as the event moves into the later rounds, I started out pretty slow in Brazil, and I wasn’t even planning on coming initially. I rode borrowed boards, ones that I shaped, epoxies, everything and I definitely think I found my formula today. I actually called my girlfriend before the Final and said, ‘every time I show up to an event after trying to pull out, I win.’ I guess that held true today. I have less pressure on myself and am free to perform to the best of my abilities.” 

pa še:

“I feel like I have all those guys (ASP World Title contenders) right where I want them, I don’t feel like I have any pressure on me, and I tend to do my best when I have no pressure. We’re coming up on Jeffreys Bay, which is probably my best event historically and hopefully I can build off my result here today.” 

Navdušen je bil seveda tudi Adriano, ki se do sedaj na domači tekmi ni ravno izkazal, sedaj pa je z drugim mestom tudi v skupni razvrstitvi drugi:

“I felt like I peaked in the Final, I don’t think I could have surfed any better. I thought I had him (Slater), but he’s the nine-time world champ, and you have to be perfect to beat him. I’m still very happy with my Runner-Up finish. It is my second of the year and puts me in a really good position heading into the next event.”
